They had excellent food and service. Our waitress (Mel) was pleasant and efficient and got all our meals correct (ten of us). The new menu is great and the prices are reasonable. We also liked the remodel. Highly recommended.

We had all but given up dining here...run down, cheesy decorations and so-so food. What a transformation! Decor has been updated and is beautiful! Had the deep fried portabello/cheese bites and a flatbread pizza...delicious! Smugglers is definitely back on our list of "let's go back"...More

It was a nice sunny day so the deck was nice overlooking the lake. Service was ok. Food was ordinary and very pricey. The inside looks like it needs a good cleaning. Probably won't go there again.

Decent service, I have worked here before, so the waitress do not treat me as they would an actual customer. Very good food. I have never been sick from their food. I would always recommend the food here.
